Choosing a Custom Home BuilderCompile a List of Builders

Buying or building a custom home is one of the most significant investments you will make. So choosing the right home and the right builder is paramount. The Custom Builders Council understands the importance of this decision and wants to help provide some guidance. The necessity of good research can not be understated. You are going to need reliable information so that you can reach the decision that is right for you.

This information is reprinted from the Custom Builders Council web site.  Here are additional tips on "Selling Your Existing Home" and on "Buying A New Home".

Ask for recommendations from friends and co-workers who have built a home. Home tours are another way to add to your list. At the Home of Enchantment Parade sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Central New Mexico in October well over 50 Home Builders put their work on display. There is a Green Built and a Solar Tour as well as region specific tours like the Placitas Home Tour. Do a web search to find out more. If you have a good relationship with a Realtor, they too can be a good starting point.
